    Native Houstonian

    When we were living in Central Florida, I really missed my hometown of Houston, badly.  Having left when I was six months pregnant was, at first, an exciting venture.  But, after our son was born, I realized how very lonely I was, for my friends and even my crazy family...

    I can't believe I am saying this but yes, I too miss Texas.  It is hot and made me sweaty but the more I think about the many places I have been in my life I admit that I miss the people of Texas.  I miss the Tex-Mex food, great cupcakes with sprinkles on top, and I...

    A Texas Girl Living In England

    How I Miss Texas

    I was born in Louisiana near the border with Texas, but before I was a year old, we moved to Texas. First it was near Plano, but I've lived all over the Dallas area. I moved to Knoxville because I got a great deal on tuition at UT (the other one). But I am still an Aggie at heart...

    It's Warm There

    "Honor the Texas flag; I pledge allegiance to thee, Texas, one state under God, one and indivisible." As far as I know, Texas is the only state with its own Pledge of Allegiance. Hank Hill is my hero.

    Want to Move

    I'm from Iowa. I guess I like it, but it's cold. So far in my life, the Army has brought me to Texas 3 times. It's been great- San Antonio and Fort Hood. Weekend passes and shooting guns. Where a man can be manly and not have to kiss everybody's butt like you do here in...

    Why Did We Move?

    I lived in Texas most my life. I grew up there. Someday I will go back, but now I live in Wisconsin. Someday, I'll refer to it as home, but Texas will always be the best home in the world. Whenever I hear a song, or see a picture, that reminds me of Texas, I start bawling.
